This is one of my favorite spots to unwind. The view never gets old.
There’s an old high school building in our town. It’s been sitting empty since the late 1990’s when a new school was built several miles away. I often walk the track that surrounds the nearby former football field, and I look at that abandoned school building as I walk. I wonder about what it was like back in the day, back when it was used in the shaping of young minds and lives. The building is now in a sad state of disrepair, but these colorful letters stand out.
Bryn had so much fun playing in the snow last week. Someone blessed us with a gently-used ski outfit that fit her perfectly and kept her warm. She loved the bright color of the jacket.
These alphabet letters were drawn freehand by my daughter Shay. She sketched initials on 6 x 6 inch canvases with colored pencils, decoupaged the canvases, and then gave them as gifts to her friends. The “A” is my favorite.
Props to my hubby for contributing this week’s photo; he’s been hiding his talent! He flew out West this past weekend and took this shot from the airplane during its descent. The clouds look heavy, yet they seem to be weightlessly suspended at the same time.
If you’ve ever visited Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort in Orlando, you’ve probably drooled over the ornate Italian marble floors and Victorian-era architectural details throughout the hotel. I’ve never actually stayed at the hotel as a guest, but Steven and I once spent an afternoon there visiting some friends and enjoyed pretending that we could afford such opulence. Good memories! For this week’s challenge, I’m sharing a photo of one of the stained glass domes in the hotel’s lobby that I took with an iPhone 4 during that visit a few years ago.
This trio of Dots Pyrex bowls is one of my favorites in my vintage Pyrex collection. I’m still on the lookout for the largest bowl to complete the set: the illusive green dots 404.
